Thats a bit like asking how long is a piece of string that is in my pocket.

I can tell you that its quite a simple electronic system.

And with some experience targeted diagnostics it will be easily solved.

On your average EPS system there is:-

A motor on the steering rack.
A sensor on the rack
A sensor on the steering column
Some form of EPS ecu stashed somewhere

The EPS ecu is connected to a pin on your OBD2 port so the error codes can be reset and retrieved using a specialist scanner - not a common cheap OBD2 scanner though.

Read this, although it is for the suzuki swift, it will be roughly the same setup most likely:- http://www.suzukiswift.sk/downloads/6-swift-vol2-steering.pdf
